The Eletre offers the best interior of any Lotus to date – by a huge margin – plus there’s loads of grip in corners and it’s a comfortable high-speed cruiser. Unfortunately, you have to put up with a lot of road noise and the ride is uncomfortable around town.

The list of standard equioment includes 22in alloy wheels, air suspension, keyless entry and start, a powered, hands-free tailgate, four-zone climate control, electric seat and steering wheel adjustment, a head-up display and a 360-degree parking camera.

If you go for the standard Eletre or the Eletre S, you get two electric motors (one on each axle for four-wheel drive) which produce a combined 603bhp. That’s enough for 0-62mph in 4.5sec and a top speed of 160mph. Meanwhile, the car’s 112kWh battery delivers an official range of up to 373 miles.
